28c At Stoneleigh Abbey, Kenilworth, Warwickshire. A "Perfect" Wedding Day.

We were at Stoneleigh Abbey with the Badsworth two weeks ago and what a pleasure to be there again, this time with the Beauford for the civil ceremony of Khloe & Ryan. Following the usual interview with the registrars, Khloe and her Mother came out to the car and we drove around the Abbey building to the ceremony location in the Orangery. It was quite magical as the route involves passing by the side of the river Avon with the waiting guests able to watch the Bride's arrival. The day was so still and warm it enabled us to arrive at a "regal" pace with the hood down. It must have been a wonderful vista for the seated guests viewing from the Orangery. Following the ceremony the Bride and Groom went on a short trip to the end of the tree lined drive, allowing them a few minutes "peace" together.

This is one of my favourite wedding locations. By the river Avon at Stoneleigh Abbey. www.stoneleighabbey.org
